GOP Blocks Bill to Punish Companies that Move Jobs Abroad. Warner sides with Republicans


    Did anyone else notice that Senator Warner was one of the 5 Democrats to join the republicans in voting down the bill to block a measure that would have used the tax code to punish big companies that shut U.S. manufacturing plants and move the jobs overseas.…

    I called his office to ask for his rationale in voting against this bill, and his aide told me that they haven’t received a statement yet from Senator Warner.  

    • We’ll see what they have to say, but I can’t imagine anything that would make me less angry at this. Voting against it would be bad enough, but voting to sustain a Mitch McConnell FILIBUSTER?!?  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
